Pythagorean Theorem – Square Numbers, Roots, and Beyond

This week the grade 7’s and 8’s are going to have very similar assignments as they learn the Pythagorean Theorem and how it relates to square numbers, roots, and more.  Watch the video below for an introduction to the concept.  Then you may access the assignment scans below.

Note: that the grade 7’s are doing assignment 1.12 whereas the grade 8’s are doing assignment 1.2

Note: it is always a best practice to review all the examples of the assignment prior to engaging in the assigned questions in order to know the potential strategies.  Also, if yo are stumped on a question you can always refer to the examples for help.

First Math Assignment – Patterns in Division

Today we started talking about division and how there are certain patterns to figure out if a number is divisible by another number. We started with some division drills and then moved on to the assignment in the link below.  It can be found in our textbooks in the classroom but this pdf will work as well.  Also, Mr. Ewert has provided copies of this assignment and they can be found on the Math shelf at the back of the classroom.
